Great Stay at Kona Reef Condo F-26
We had a wonderful stay at Kona Reef Condo F-26. The unit was in a great location, close to shops and restaurants, with incredible views. We loved drinking our morning coffee and watching the surfers. The kitchen was stocked well for those who enjoy cooking,... more the bed was comfortable, and the sunsets...priceless. The pool and hot tub were great for relaxing after a busy day exploring the island. less

Great Time and Great Location
This condo was just as described. The condo itself is a little dated but had everything we needed to enjoy our stay and was clean which is most important. The lanai was close enough to the water to hear the waves but not directly on... more the water. Seeing whales or dolphins was a struggle from the lanai but the beach was just a few steps away. We did enjoy having drinks on the lanai and watching the surfers right in front of our complex. The condo complex was well maintained and enjoyable. Staying as a guest was comfortable and welcoming. The pool was warm, relaxing and was never crowded. The grills were great for barbequing our meals. There are owners that live here and take pride in the complex. Everyone cares and it shows. It really was a great location. Within walking distance to shopping and restaurants but not right in the middle of town with all the tourists. Look forward to staying here again. less

Well equipt, clean, easy walk to shops and resturants, great ocean view!
— l, Stayed 05/01/2021
We had a wonderful time in this condo and would definitely stay here again. It was quiet, yet you could hear the waves at night. It had everything one would need. We enjoyed the nice breeze, especially since it is an end unit. We will... more be back! less

My Stay in F-26 in Kona Reef Condo
My stay was very enjoyable. The unit was clean and all necessities were provided. Appliances were in good working order. The instructions provided made it easy to access the the unit. The view was terrific and the lanai was a nice touch. I would recommend... more this unit to future guests. less
— James , Stayed 03/22/2020
This condo is very comfortable and well appointed. We enjoyed our stay very much. The only drawback is the noise factor. Being an end unit, the traffic noise in the evening and into the night from Ali'i Drive is amplified. It is a small inconvenience... more that we adapted to pretty quickly. less

Would stay again
This is the second time at these condos. Different unit, but same condo. Great location to restaurants etc in Kona. Walking or bike distance. Amazing views. Clean, beautiful pool and facilities. Quiet and respectful. Wish I could come for longer!

Great Place and Location
My cousin and I enjoyed our stay at the Condo. We arrived late and the office was closed so we wern't able to get our vehicle registered and was afraid of getting towed. I contacted Vance and got a prompt response and the parking situation... more was all figured out. The condo its self was everything that was advertised and more! Great location, clean, and had the perfect view of the pool and beach. less

Kona Reef - F26
Nice, clean unit. Well stocked with everything you would need for a short or long stay. Nice views of pool area and ocean. Owner is very responsive and provided excellent communication regarding check-in and check-out.
— Connelly, Stayed 01/20/2020
My wife and I had a wonderful time staying at Kona Reef, Condo F-26 for a week. The unit is clean, comfortable, updated and the building is terrific. The location is perfect, walking distance to Kona shops and restaurants and a quick drive to great... more swimmable beaches. We enjoyed the pool and being right on the beach. Having snorkel gear, beach towels, chairs and umbrellas was a huge plus. We will definitely be back. less

Nice, well managed condo
This condo was a great value, with good location and real nice 3rd story view of ocean. Condo managers were very professional, they even checked to make sure that we arrived safely.
— Jamie, Stayed 12/13/2019
F26 is our favorite condo at Kona Reef. We want to thank you for your prompt response and taking care of the few issues we had. We will definitely stay at your condo again. Our only request is new pillows By the way what did... more your wife think of the size of the new table? Hope to visit next year. less

Kona Reef F-26 was ideal
We truly enjoyed our stay at Kona Reef F-26. The condo has a welcome to Hawaii feel. The view along with the ocean waves sounds were soothing. Sleeping was no problem, although bedroom is on parking lot side. I read everything which proved necessary, there... more is a to do list before leaving which includes stripping of bed sheets etc. I highly recommend Kona Reef F-26 perfect setting, near to Ali Drive sites, shops, restaurants, beaches and more. I must add communication from beginning was excellent and responses quick. less
— Patricia, Stayed 10/30/2019
Wonderful condo. Clean, with lots of details that make it convenient and pleasant. Thank you!
— Susan, Stayed 10/20/2019
Pros: Great view, close to town, clean, good communication with the owners when we had a question. Cons: The unit backs up to the road so it was very noisy in the bedroom. We were there for garbage pickup morning also. The lights coming into... more the entrance are on all night and shine through the window. I would suggest black out curtains. Other than that it could use some upkeep and some redecorating. The view makes up for a lot and again the owners were very helpful. less
— Julie, Stayed 09/03/2019
Thanks, Julie, for your kind suggestions. We will add black out drapes and white noise machine to our ‘to do” list now that new, upgraded air conditioning is in, new ceiling fans, new wall lamp, dishwasher, washer/dryer, carpet, paint in bedroom have all been finished. We look forward to seeing you again in the future! Safe travels. Vance
Very nice stay
we stay at the Kona Reef condo for 5 nights in July 2019: a couple + our adult son (19 years old). The condo was clean and as described in the web site. It is very near the Kona village, so you don't need the... more car to go there. We use the pool and the bbq site, all was perfectly maintain and never too crowd. We take our coffee on the lanai each morning and watch the surfer in front of the resort. The communication with Vance and Bethyl is perfect and quick at any time. I would recommend this place without hesitation. The only little problem we had is with the sofa-bed... could be ok for children or a very light person. My adult son cannot sleep on it (he is of average size) and as I'm lighter I use it to sleep. BUT otherwise, all was very perfect... I would not hesitate to rent it again (but for two!). Thanks you Vance and Bethyl. From : sophie and Frank less

Exactly what we needed.
Cute condo Nice view. Clean. Well stocked. Some beach gear for use.
— Jennifer, Stayed 07/24/2019
The condo was in a great location and nice, except for needing better AC (which the owners said is being replaced after our visit). Nice ocean views, great pool area, and a comfortable bed. Owners were very helpful and nice.
— Sharron, Stayed 07/01/2019
My boyfriend and I came for a much needed RR trip. This condo was fantastic! The entire condo was comfortable and the location was amazing. The owners were very quick to respond to any questions and also left a welcome pineapple that was delicious. A... more very quick walk to all the restaurants and bars. If flying in stop by the Costco, Walmart or Safeway for groceries on your way to the condo and do not forget to buy your own coffee/tea. Sitting outside in the morning and watching the surfers was so relaxing. If we come back to the big island we would stay here again. Mahalo! less
— Erin, Stayed 05/20/2019
Kona Reef is a great resort complex, our fifth visit.
F26 has a prime location in the only building that has complete elevator service. We enjoyed getting to know the Shepperson’s, the owners, as they resolved some issues with the unit. They were very responsive. Since the units are individually owned, each owner manages the... more renovation schedule of their unit. Some have been completely redone and some need more work. Our big complaint is with the Aloha booking site. We found them to be very difficult to deal and will avoid working with them in the future. The most ridiculous part of their contract makes it impossible to get a refund if you need to cancel a reservation, the renter gets “credit” on another Aloha-managed unit within 12 months! less
— Peter, Stayed 5/6/2019
Hi Peter, Thanks for your comments on our F/26 Kona Reef unit. I’m happy to give you a liberal cancellation policy, on request, not just credit for new dates. We try to minimize this to give everyone a fair shake. Last minute cancellation policies tend to go with higher prices, and we want to keep our prices competitive. Also, we’re glad you enjoyed the new carpeting, new washer/dryer, new ceiling fan, and new dishwasher. We want you to have a first rate experience. Best to you, Peter, and hope to see you and Linda again soon.
Great oceanview - Fab amenities- oceanfront pool
After 30 years of traveling to Kona this is one of the nicest condos we’ve stayed in. Great location, oceanfront amenities, full Oceanview, nicely furnished, big tv, comfortable bed, lots of fans, air conditioning, and ocean breeze. Super convenient coded lock.

Condo F-26, Kona Reef
We enjoyed our six days staying at this beautiful, convenient, and clean condo. Appreciate the beach chairs and umbrella. Walking distant to farmer market and restaurants.
— Dan, Stayed 02/13/2019
Great location and amazing views
This condo was perfect for our family vacation. The views of the ocean were unreal, and watching the sunset from the lanai was amazing (and the fan out there made it so pleasant even at the hottest time of day). The location right next to... more Honl’s beach was perfect, our son was thrilled to be able to walk right over to the beach anytime to play in the sand and waves. We even saw turtles there twice! And having the pool right on site was great for when we wanted water time away from the sand. The furniture and beds (including the sofa bed) were very comfortable, then kitchen was well appointed and the entire place was lovely and homey. Having the beach supplies like towels, an umbrella and chairs was such a nice touch. And having a washer/dryer in the unit was a fantastic bonus. The location just can’t be beat. An easy walk into Kona (even for our 5 year old) meant we didn’t need to use our car often, and there are so many fantastic shops and delicious places to eat nearby. This place is a gem and we can’t wait to stay here again! less

Great Location and facility
We enjoyed 3 great weeks on the Big Island and staying in Condo F-26 was the perfect location to be at. Close to downtown and the Farmers Market while off the main drag for peace and quiet. The unit was well maintained and has everything... more you need. Being on the end and at the top gave you plenty of light and a refreshing breeze so that air conditioning was not needed much. The grounds are well maintained and a great view of the bay and activities that go on throughout the day. We will be back in the future. Thanks Vance and Bethyl less
— Steven J, Stayed 12/10/2018
This condo is absolutely amazing. The view was phenomenal a straight shot of the ocean close enough to feel the breeze coming in. It was stock with everything we needed down to snorkeling gear and towels for the beach. I would highly recommend it. How... more ever at the time of my stay there was some construction going on, but it was a terribly big deal. less
— Jacob, Stayed 11/17/2018
Wonderful condo, view and owners.
A very nice condo fully stocked with toys and kitchen tools. Wonderful views from all of the rooms and lanai. Great cross breeze and excellent AC system. Very clean and organized. Owners were very attentive and relational. Excellent value! Kona Reef we feel is the... more absolute best location and we would definately stay at this condo again, if we're hadn't just bought one ourselves. less
— Theresa, Stayed 09/09/2018
Beautiful view of sunsets over the Pacific Ocean in a comfortable, breezy condo.
Thank you so much for the wonderful stay in your beach home! We had such a great time at the beach and the pool with our two little ones! Your view here is amazing from the lanai with the ocean and the sunset. We couldn’t... more have asked for a better view! We loved seeing all the boats and helicopters flying by. We particularly enjoyed easing on the lanai, swimming in the pool, and walking right out to the ocean for some wadding. We had a wonderful time here on our first big vacation with the kids! Thank you again! The owners were very welcoming, accommodating, and responsive. We would love to stay at this property again in the future. less
— M & Z, Stayed 6/26/2018
Our stay was amazing
Thank you for the stay in your condo. My friend and I came on this trip to allow to take a step back from working over 80 hours a week. Waking up to coffee on the balcony was exactly what I needed. I have been... more to the Big Island six times over the past 3 years and this stay was even better than the others! I hope to bring my family back for the Holidays to create some more amazing memories. Everything was perfect at our condo. Thanks again for everything. less
